Hi everybody. My daughter has never been a brilliant sleeper but recently she's getting worse. She used to sleep really good when she slept with me but she won't skeep in her own bed. Up to about 2 months ago she would stay in her bed till about 3 or 4 am then come out and I would put her back in and tell her more sleep and kiss and cuddle. Now she can cry for up to an hour at bedtime and say she needs the toilet but she doesn't just sits there and does nothing.then when she finally goes to sleep she's wakes up every 1 or 2 hours crying and crying because she wants to get into my bed. She'll say she needs wee wee when I say no bit again doesn't go. She can stay awake for hours crying. It's really getting exhausting I'd appreciate any advice

Well, first, if she's indicating a need to urinate more frequently, but no results, have you had her to a physician? She may have a UTI or other bladder condition that is making it hard on her.
Otherwise, she's pushing boundaries, like a normal 2 year old, and you need to keep up a consistent routine and discipline/redirection methods.
